Fast, delicious Thai food

This is one of my favorite lunch spots. Their food is delicious and the service is friendly and fast. I've been here many times for dining in, as well as takeout. It's a small restaurant for casual dining, so it's not somewhere you'd go for a romantic meal. But, it's my favorite Thai restaurants in... read more

The food and service are excellent. Small venue with nice atmosphere. Great for take-out, too. I live nearby and eat here all the time. It's my favorite Asian restaurant. They are glute-free conscious, too, if that's a concern. The food is fresh, tasty, and healthy.

The food is so flavorful and delicious and they are willing to make accommodations for food allergies. We have returned several times and they remember how my daughter has requested her food. The staff is so friendly and they always acknowledge you when you arrive and thank you for coming when you leave. Every meal we have tried has been... More

This is a very cute small restaurant in an Encinitas commercial center. The pad thai comes with coconut soup and a spring roll. The portion size of the pad thai was a little small but I thought it was all quite tasty. Service was good and fast, too. I would try the second location in La Jolla.

We enjoyed the green curry. The service was great. Very warm but not pushy. I've eaten there a couple of years ago and liked it. I'd definitely go back.

I had lunch there just today with a friend. The Yellow Curry with Calamari Lunch Special. $12. with a drink that never went empty. They are very good to their customers. The range on how spicy your food is, varies between 1 to 10. I highly recommend you stick with 5. The food is flavorful and ample. I have eaten... More

This is a very small but friendly restaurant that serves the standards and then some specialties. Get adventurous, but be careful because when they say spicy, it is spicy. Staff changes too much, but the food is consistent and very tasty.

& great varied menu too, not a down side to this place. Pat See You highly suggested. ANd just like everyone else mentions, friendly service - not a rough edge to our waitress.

This is a gr8 place anytime, for dine-in, outdoor seating or carry-out. They serve all afternoon so it's perfect for a late lunch or early dinner. They offer many specials and will add or omit ingredients and make it as hot/spicy as you wish. The lemongrass soup is delicious and everything is flavorful and fresh.

The four of us all enjoyed our lunch specials, which were a good value. They included soup and a hand roll or egg roll. The egg roll is more like a spring roll. The soup and spicy basil noodles were excellent. I would definitely go here again.
